11 May – 15 June 2022

$350 per person

Includes all materials. Please bring a drink and something for lunch and wear closed shoes.

The glimpses of scenery we spot while driving stay in our minds for a long time, years sometimes! Taking inspiration from the surrounding landscape of Lake Ginninderra, this course will take you through watercolour techniques and compositions that embrace the idea of the glimpse

The class will ask how do you make a small selection for a painting when confronted with our large environment? And how do you keep it interesting? Suitable for beginners and more experienced painters, fall in love with watercolour landscape painting with Nicolette Benjamin Black.
